While Freddy vs. Jason wasn’t terribly popular among fans of either franchise, there is talk of another kick at the can, this time starring Evil Dead‘s Ash character. Freddy vs. Jason vs. Ash will be theatre bound if they can secure the legal rights. Now, this I might actually see, if Ash wins in the end, of course. I saw Army of Darkness on IFC a few weeks back and it holds pretty well ten years after its release. Not bad, considering it’s basically a horror movie directed by Chuck Jones, although Ash constant over the top screaming got a little on my nerves. It’s little like watching a guy get kicked in the nuts, over and over and over again. Funny, yes. But there is such a thing as overload.
Also of note is that if they can’t get the rights to Ash, they’ll bring in another character from the annals of horror flick history. Personally I’d vote for Robocop but they’ll probably stick us with Pinhead from Hellraiser of something.
